Our cute little snowman sat outside on the bar for most of the day.

Creative aunt Carol gave him mini snickers for eyes and a hotdog for a nose.
Not a great picture, but all three of my boys were sledding down the hill.

David and Grant are so proud of their snowman.

Joseph...aka Tate.
Chloe was Mary and Tate was Joseph. Grant was supposed to be a wiseman but he got stage fright

Tate got a real guitar from Mimi and Daddo. He loves to play guitars with his Daddo!

Chloe doesn't usually wake up early so on Christmas she was quite surprised when we were up at 6:45!

David's Papo came from Denver. Matt, Emily, and Ella came from Ft Worth.

Tate wanted a Wii for Christmas but he is just as happy with "Big Buck Hunter" that Nana and Babbo gave him.

Back at home in Austin checking out what Santa left on December 26th.

Grant opening his presents from mom and dad.

Tate's other present this Christmas.........

................................his second deer this week! He has never killed anything before and he got two deer in one week! He was SOOOOO excited!
For Christmas this year we went to Weatherford. I am so glad we did because it SNOWED all day Thursday! The boys were so happy and shocked to see snow. Weatherford hasn't had a white Christmas since I was in Kindergarten! The kids and the uncles loved playing, sledding, and building two snowmen. We came home on Christmas afternoon because David's grandfather from Denver was in town as well as Uncle Matt, Aunt Emily, and cousin Ella. We enjoyed having them come over on the day after Christmas to have brunch with us after the boys had opened their gifts from us and Santa. It was a great holiday!

December fun

Tate saw Santa in Johnson City, he finally sat on his lap alone!
This was the only way we could get Grant close to him.

Every year they decorate the PEC building with millions of lights!

Trail of Lights with friends Blake and Barrett. least Brooklyn would smile for the camera.

Getting ready to decorate the gingerbread house after a bath, what was I thinking?

it was starting to lean.......

so we ate it.
Tate got what he wanted from Santa this year.....

he shot his first deer! He was SOOOOO excited!

We have been so busy this month and it has all been a blast! Tate is out of school and loving sleeping late but continues to ask "If I were at school right now, what would I be doing?" I think he might miss it just a little bit. We are heading to Weatherford in two days and will be back on Christmas night to celebrate with David's family. Merry Christmas!
